֍Imagining Isabel, Omar S. Castaneda, (1995), 200 pp --- [ages 12+, reading grade 6+] [Living Mayan Culture]
This well-written books stands on its own as well as is a sequel to "Among the Volcanoes". With the issues of the Guatemalan civil war as a backdrop, Isabel is now 15 and married to Lucas. She has an unusual chance to attend a teachers program across the lake. There is intrigue as well as the personal growth as Isabel explores new things while trying to remain true to herself, her marriage and Mayan traditions in a dangerous time of Guatemalan history. Another book I enjoyed reading.
